Thank you to our Cornerstone family for making the Christmas Shoe Box campaign such a success this year! Our total number of boxes brought in was 922 (322 more than last year!): 230 for New Missions and 692 for Samaritan's Purse. 20 teacher boxes were assembled from donations from the life groups for the New Missions schools in Haiti.
We had a tremendous committee of hard-working volunteers, as usual. The boxes were prayed over as each of the members of our group placed their hands on them at our New Missions packing party at the Poppen's home on November 10th. Debbie and Jesse Poppen "housed" ALL 922 boxes in their home and personally transported the 692 Samaritan's Purse boxes to the distribution center in Fullerton on November 12th!
Thank you again for blessing so many children and their families around the world by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Blessings from the Cornerstone Christmas Shoe Box Committee
